Three years, less 90 days, from the time you became either a CPR or PR, depending on which status you FIRST held. In your case, it is CPR status. And it is filing WITHIN those 90 days before the expiration date on the green card.

Does your green card say 4/1/19 - 3/31/21? Go by the last date, not the date you entered. It is not a hard question really. Just use the expiration date on the existing green card and forget about your entry date altogether when applying for ROC.

As for naturalization, add one year to the expiration date on the existing card, less 90 days and you are eligible to file for naturalization. Since you married in 2017, your marriage will be well over the three year limit.

Card says
resident since 04/01/19
card expires 04/01/21

So by the expiration date, I'll have also been married 3 years and 4 months. I just find it bizarre it take so long to remove conditions, when I got my GC and SSN within 3 weeks of landing.

Also reading other people's accounts whilst taking the naturalization process, while there waiting for the removal of conditions, could be a long wait , not sure if it's best to just wait till the conditions are removed. Can't believe this process is flawed in this way.....regards.

It has been this way for over 20 years. One day it might change but frankly, I don't think it will.

We waited 18 months back in early 2000's. Hubby filed for naturalization and thankfully, the I-751 was approved 3 weeks before the interview.

Rete’s posts are spot on. I will add one practical point — the filing window starts 90 days before the second and third anniversaries of granting conditional status. I always recommended NOT filing on the first possible day; wait a week. Two reasons, a mistaken early application will result in a denial (even if early by one day), and believe it or not, there is legal dispute as to what constitute the first and last day of a window. Is it worth it to file on what one thinks is the very first day?

Update - got my 10 yr GC in the mail this last weekend, not too bad in the end though having to keep track of my extension letter was getting a bit nervewracking!
